My favorite thing about working at Portacool is the people who work here! They are the kindest, nicest, most helpful people in Texas.

What is your favorite memory from your time at Portacool so far?
My family and I went through an extended time of difficulty several years ago. Portacool was right there beside us, offering help and comfort that made it a little easier to go through. They were there for us – I’ll never forget it.

When I started with Portacool, we were producing about 25 Portacool evaporative coolers a day. Now, with a lot of hard work and God’s blessing, we are producing more than 300 products a day! It’s been exciting to watch the growth and be a part of it on a day-to-day basis.
